Esther Smith Ward (my grandfathers sister) supposedly married Marion Ward. Marion and Esther were from Hawkins Co Tn. I find her in 1920 in Tn and Marion in McDowell County, WVa. I was told they married and had children and that Esther died shortly thereafter. I see Marion Ward and a Mary Lena Ward mentioned in 1942 on Marion's draft registration. Who is Lena? I am really hitting a brick wall with these folks. Can anyone help?
If Esther died young, it is very possible that other families took the children and raised them and might have changed their names.
